30 governors for the team. which is the highest level in 12 years. maybe another in washington state, so there was some bright spots, but overall, i agree. a combination of tone and message and reaching out to new and minority voters and making sure that we do a better job on the ground. >> well, gracious to come out and directly admit it, although you are right on on the governor's side. one of the wings that cornyn was referring to was the tea party and some big name tea partiers lost last night. joe walsh, josh mande ll, richard murdoch in indiana. he had a specific situation there with the comments he made on abortion, but i think the question is is the tea party still relevant? is it now become an albatross? >> erin, what the tea party and other conservatives that believe we ought to -- balance budget, i think that's pretty a mainstream idea. they helped me immensely with the victory in virginia three years ago. i think it's how we organize. how we deliver the message. we've got to be a lot more inclusive and open and energetic by expressing why these are -- we've just got to do
't heard from him since he returned to washington yesterday. we were told though by the white house this evening he'll make a statement on the fiscal cliff tomorrow but as far as what we know right now the administration says the president has already laid out his plan. it's a plan he says would cut the deficit by $4 trillion over the next ten years. it's also a plan those, that we've told you before doesn't add up. so something has to give. and someone needs to take the helm. last night here on "outfront" we tried to find out from chris van hollen what the president's role would be on the fiscal cliff. >> that remains to be seen exactly who will be the negotiate or negotiators. the white house has to be engaged. the president will make clear as he did in his acceptance speech last night we need to compromise. i think the president will be directly involved. >> directly involved but not clear what his role would be. will the president take the lead? here's the thing. americans want answers soon. today i overheard a major democratic fundraiser and lobbyist ben barnes saying this to a
e-mails? >> reporter: well, erin, general allen is said to be here in washington. in fact, he flew here from afghanistan, because on thursday he was supposed to have that senate confirmation hearing to become the military head of nato, all of that now on hold. sources close to general allen have told our own nick paton walsh that allen says he did not have an affair with jill kelley, a pentagon official has also said directly that general allen denies any affair, any extra marital involvement with jill kelley. but look, erin. the reality here is, defense secretary leon panetta ordered up a full-blown inspector general investigation, and a lot of people around the pentagon say leon panetta wouldn't have done that unless there was something that needed to be looked into. >> and barbara, what's your understanding about general allen and if he's heading back to afghanistan, as we had heard he might be? >> reporter: well, he might, in fact, head back, we're told, in the next couple days to afghanistan, because frankly, there's nothing for him to do here in washington. he is still in com
's a woman and has access and writes a book ab a man in washington is not reason enough to think there was more than that and given his reputation, his moral character, how many respect him at such a high level here in washington and even as director in the cia, there were sometimes personality clashes. sources that told me between him and the number two in charge who the president has asked to step up in that number one role. more sort of his mind set in the way he felt things should be downed, so people are stunned. >> fred, given the timing of it, that this has come just a week before he was supposed to testify about the benghazi situation, which now he isn't, but we have some news on that in just a few moments, what was his relationship with president obama? >> i'm told that a coweuple of years ago when he was still commander in afghanistan, there was tension with members in the white house staff. when they were reviewing the options on whether to put in more troops, options to box the president in. i've been told in the last couple of years that relations are very good with
that kelley has been known to be on the washington social circuit. it's possible they had socialized here, but source say friends are describing her as feeling like she's an innocent victim in this and that a friend of petraeus' who spoke with him throughout the weekend and also today, erin, says that the general, the retired general has assisted to his friends that he only had one affair. only one other woman. >> the big question tonight, who knew what, and when did they know it about the petraeus affair? and does the timing of his resignation add up? here's what we can tell you tonight, in the early summer the fbi began an investigation. by the late summer, high level officials at the fbi and the justice department were notified. that investigators uncovered what appeared to be an affair between petraeus and broadwell. now, according to the "wall street journal," eric holder is among those who were informed. now, between october 21st and november 3rd, the fbi agented interviewed broadwell and petraeus. then on october 31st, eric cantor's office was notified. he passed on the concerns to
election express bus. i'm also joined by john king in washington, d.c. the electoral college map, how does it add up right now? >> when you talk to the two campaigns, it's as if even though it's one country, they live in parallel universes. both saying they will win tomorrow. the president is ahead in most of the key battleground states. they are down confidence in the obama campaign and don't get too much dispute out of the romney campaign that they will win the state of nevada. then they come to the midwest where you are. they are most confident in the midwest they will carry again. i know republicans watching are saying they'll prove you wrong. they're confident about the state of iowa. that would get the president to 259. takes 270 win. when you ask them about these battleground states, they say they're most confidence about ohio, where you are. the president took that game over. no republicans won the white house without it, but say they're wrong about it. keep it a toss-up. if this happens, if the president won novembevada, iowa wisconsin, could romney get to 270? yes, barely. give f
story "outfront," war in washington. both sides blaming the other for a lack of action on that fiscal cliff. when taxes duoup and spending gets slashed. today, the rhetoric was ratcheted up another notch as mitch mcconnell slammed the president's plan. to raise 1.6 trillion in tax increases over the next ten years. >> an opening bid of $1.6 trillion in new taxes just isn't serious. it's more than simpson bowles or more than any other commission has called for. it's twice as much as the white house seemed ready to agree to during last summer's debt ceiling talks. a joke. >> dick durbin joins me now. good to see you. it's a joke. what do you think? >>. >> i think senator mcconnell needs to take another look at the report. i severed on that commission. a reduction of $4 trillion came from revenue. it was in the range of $1.6 trillion. >> you talk about 1.6 trillion. there's ways to get there in ways that don't necessarily raise tax rates. you could cap deductions at $35,000 and have the estate tax go back to where it was and get $1.3 million. i'm simply making the point there's a loft wa
is quite good here and the economy is below 75%. it's twice as big as washington, d.c. under 2 million people there. they're predominantly palestinian and their economy is very bad, unemployment very high. globalfire.com has called israel the tenth most powerful military in the world. why is that? well, let's break it down a little bit. they have compulsory military service there, so they have a lot of troops ready at a moment's notice, 176,000 active troops. they could also draw up a half million from the reserves pretty easily, so that's a robust force out there. look at their attack units here. 3,000 tanks if you add in all the army personnel carriers and artillery units and mortars out there, you have 12,000 ground units here. that's an awful lot, and of course their air force is formidable. about 800 air strikes. this is what they use to strike at gaza. if you look at hamas, in terms of what they officially have in uniform, police, whatever you want to call them, only about 12,500 and they have nothing like the weapons the israelis have. however -- big point here -- palestinian mi
